K ennet h W. K emp Religion and the Science Classroom What relevance could theology have to the work of the sci ence teacher? Some people say that the answer is obviously “none,” but I think that that answer is not entirely correct. Drawing on the Catholic intellectual tradition, I want to propose six principles of science teaching, principles which, I think, should guide practice in our Catholic schools and which could also, perhaps with some adap tation, be of good service in other Christian, and even in public, schools as well. What are those principles? 1. One goal of education is an integrated understanding of reality. 2. The correlation between intellectual discipline and real sub ject matter is complex. 3. The nature of each discipline gives the discipline its power and sets its limits. 4. Natural science (as a discipline) requires only a modest meth odological naturalism, not a metaphysical naturalism. 5. Conflict has not been the characteristic feature of the histori cal relationship between science and religion. 6. Conflict between the best results of contemporary science l o g o s 23 :2 s p r i n g 2020 religion and the science classroom 37
